The Marble Factory is one of Bristol’s newest additions to the venues on offer. The facility opened its doors to the public in November 2014 with a gig featuring The Damned. Before being used as a music venue, the site was used as a skate park. It’s not a huge venue, with a capacity of just 550, but is unique and many great artists have performed here in its short time of being open, including Gentleman’s Dub Club
